Description

Problem:
The listening addresses are hardcoded to localhost within the different "internal clients" (e.g. lib/OpenQA/Scheduler/Client.pm and lib/OpenQA/WebSockets/Client.pm).
This limitation prevents running the different parts of the web UI on different hosts, e.g. a load balanced environment because the different components (scheduler, websockets, …) cannot communicate witch each other.

Suggested solution:
Read an environment variable like OPENQA_SCHEDULER_HOST. This environment variable needs then be supplied to all other containers.
Note: It looks like the livehandler and gru don't have a client. That likely means it is no necessary to care about them as no other services access them (via HTTP).

AC1: The addresses in the "internal clients" are configurable

I guess set_listen_address in lib/OpenQA/Utils.pm is the main entry point here 🤔

Would MOJO_LISTEN do for a work-around? As documented in the Mojo::Server::Daemon module.

I think we need this as well as prerequisite. Not sure if we are loosing focus by bringing it back to the backlog at this time. Let's try.
